    Completely stupid show so far…

    • The M

      So Far? That's all, other than the dark matches!

  • Christ 4 Life

    Unlike last week, this SD sucks!

  • Bob

    Was Cesaro vs Kidd a squash?

  • Christ 4 Life

    So is Nikki face or heel, I'm so confused, either way, I can't wait for Kharma!

  • Wwefan4eva

    Antonio Cesaro, Damien Sandow, Ryback are all newbies on SD now. I have a feeling all three rn’t getting any pushes anytime soon

    • Patrick_Peralta

      Antonio Cesaro, Damien Sandow, Ryback are all new guys to WWE

      but Antonio Cesaro all so known as Claudio Castagnoli from ROH and the Tag Team Kings of Wrestling is the most experienced of the 3 guys on Smackdown… he will no doubt get a push WWE is high on him.. He is very talented as well as Very Europian.

  • Wwefan4eva

    How are they supposed to push people if people keep debuting!

  • Eric

    I never watch smackdown.. This is a perfect example.

    • Lee

      I argee with you, never nothing good on it.

      • Vince

        The last time something good happened was 2009

    • XKonn247

      Of what?

  • Andrew

    Ezekiel Jackson and Yoshi Tatsu? Why are they randomly putting people together?

  • Mark

    Whats the point in putting Khali over Rhodes? dumb

    • havoc525

      Not sure if you’ve noticed, there’s an alliance between Show and Khali, not to mention the whole “distracted by Big Show’s” music deal means it wasn’t a clean win. Got a bad feeling, either Show drops the IC title to Khali after a turn, or someone else and we get Khali and Show with the tag titles.

    this show looks awful

  • Matt

    Just got home from smackdown. Was good but NXT and superstars were a drag. Hornswoggle as match cordinator? Camacho sucking. The dark match street fight not even using weapons? C’mon man!

  • Patrick_Peralta

    another reason to watch Smack down Daniel Bryan and Antonio Cesaro ( Claudio Castagnoli ) smack down just became "Very Europian"

  • Aman Bajaj

    Christian was SUpposed to Come Back….!!!!

  • Mike

    No drew Mac no sign of dean ambrose….wtf

  • mike

    has nobody realized that christian was supposed to be on the show?

  • British bulldog

    After last week I decided to stop watching SD, find It an awful boring show, for the first time I looked at the spoilers just now and glad I didn’t have to waste 2 hours of my life.

    Think it will be. Regular thing for me reading spoilers. Never watch SD again

    • Kleck

      I’m sorry you suffered for so long

  • Tna

    Thought Christian was supposed to be returning …

  • Paul

    Smackdown hasn’t been good for a few months now, the legends one was a let down and there’s just a lack of star talent with exceptions of Orton, Sheamus, bryan and a few others, did think Christian was coming back.

  • Jonathan

    You guys haven’t even seen the show yet… Stop complaining..

    • Mr. Anderson 4ever

      I agree with u sometimes they show is better watchin it thsn just readiy whys gonna happen

  • Tiday

    Moan moan moan…

  • This Smackdown doesn’t have good parts at all!Oh well,no more SD 😉

  • H.M.

    Oh, come on it doesn't sound that bad. Someone mind telling me what the fuss is all about? Big Zeka/Tatsu in an arbitrary tag team? WWE has a tendency to do that so who cares? Khali going over due to a sensible booking int he storyline between Show/Rhodes? Sure we all despise watching Khali attempting to even move in the ring, but at least he's not main eventing…right?

    I mean, sure there are some questionable things if at all but this SD! looks like an average/decent episode so far. Antonio Cesaro aka Claudio Castagnoli who I know very little about sounds like a pretty interesting fellow and I'll go out of my way to search up a bit more about him, and I've become a pretty big fan of Damien Sandow's current intellectually enlightened gimmick. Ryback is the fast and hard hitting powerhouse that WWE needs and I hope he advances from squashing terribad jobbers to an actual decent feud. He's like a mix between Rhyno and Goldberg to me and he looks pretty fluid when he hits his moves…nothing like the green Mason Ryan or the seemingly limited Ezekiel Jackson. People complain about WWE not pushing young talent..well folks I think we can hopefully expect big things from the new guys that ARE being pushed.

    And no Christian on Smackdown? Perhaps next week I suppose. Oh well :/
